I’m going to link to this through the main page on my blog and make it an “evergreen” post, but it’s not going to be what you might think.
One issue I hear from readers (and other writers) is that someone will really enjoy a new series but miss the new books when they come out. (This happens to really well-known writers, too, and I’m talking about big names you might not expect.) Maybe it’s because so many books are released now? Maybe it’s that so many people buy online that they spend less time browsing shelves?
I don’t know. I talk about this sort of thing on my blog, but I also put all sorts of other stuff there, too, and not everyone is interested in all that shit. So do I rely on readers’ willingness to follow my blog when all they care about is book news? Do I rely on the odd “Whatever happened to…?” moments that prompt someone to look me up?
I don’t think so. Here’s my plan: I’ve set up an email newsletter. It only goes out when I have new work available. It’s not monthly. It’s not quarterly. I won’t put in pictures of cats or recipes or anecdotes about my life. You can get that here (except the cats). This is only to let you know when I have something new out.
Should you sign up, you will receive a confirmation email asking you to confirm that you want to receive the newsletter. If you don’t see it, check your spam folder. If you don’t confirm, you won’t be on the list and won’t get notified of new work.
(UGH! The confirmation process is throwing out error messages to folks who sign up. Don’t worry. I’ve checked several and despite the messages, you will be confirmed. I’ll be updating this bit of software at some point, but not right away. Many apologies, and please ignore the error messages.)

As of today, 9/26/22, five Twenty Palaces novels and one novella have been released. I also have a short fiction collection that contains a Twenty Palaces novelette.
I also offer a grimdark epic crime-fantasy, an epic fantasy trilogy, a pacifist urban fantasy, and a game tie-in novel. More details here. Just click on those book covers.
I’m sure I’ll forget to keep that paragraph updated. Sign up for the newsletter if you want to stay up to date.
By the way, this is my 1,500th post on this blog. Perfect.
